    Why can't I butter the whole roll?!

    Can I just start by saying I have excellent table manners, I hold my knife and fork just as A*O has elegantly displayed for us all. But if I am in a restaurant I am not going to rip a tiny bit of bread, delicately butter the minute piece before eating it, and then repeat the whole palaver all over again. I eat like a human being not a bleeding squirrel !!

    Don't dip a buttery knife in the jam or a jammy knife in the butter.
    Ah yes!! This shits me to tears, especially as I don't like jam.. luckily no-one in our house eats vegemite anymore. That stuff is foul.
    For a moment I was worried as I read the discussion on how to hold/use utensils properly, not knowing if I was taught the right way or not, but apparently I was. I don't like eating in front of others unless it's at home because I worry that I'm not eating "properly"!!!

    Feel free to butter the whole roll, Tenaj - I did say it was a bit of a picky one!

    I am English, but not from Henley - near Loughborough at the moment.

    I HATE it when people stir their coffee or tea and hit the sides of the cup with their spoon. Or slurp their soup, or smack their lips. Or eat with their mouths full. Etcetera.
    ... how else would people eat if their mouths weren't full of food?

    What I also hate is, not a bad eating habit, but has to do with food so bear with me, when cooks (professional or not) stick feathers up their own butts on how excellent or perfect a dish they made turned out.

    "Taste my sauce, it's excellent". "My Coc au Vin turned out perfect". "I'll make you one of my delicious pies". My mom always told me "A good dish will earn its own compliments, you won't have to give hints they should like it."

    And if I am in a restaurant eating my bread like a squirrel and notice someone looking at me, I'll come over and say hi!

    It doesn't bother me, but I was taught it was poor etiquette. We had an etiquette dinner for business majors so we would know how to act on a lunch/dinner meeting. One of the instructors big things was the bread. You are apparently supposed to take butter and put it on your plate, then only butter the portion you are about to eat.

    You are also ony supposed to cut up to 3 bites of meat at a time. He stressed that one a lot too.

    And everything must be passed clockwise around the table.

    Most people only went because it included a free meal in the nicest restaurant in town.

    I already agree with a lot of what has been already said, although I must confess to being an avid gum chewer and I have to drink my coffee scalding hot but I'm usually alone when doing so.

    I also have issues with people that cut their food into infant sized pieces and then move and puch the food around their plate without actually eating it. If you don't want to eat don't get or order yourself a plate full of food.

    And when people make a scene in a restaurant when the different foods are touching. Seriously your mashed taters are not going to destroy the taste of your steak.

    Tenaj - I used to live in Henley and learned all my arcane table manners at Phyllis Court!

    Ref bread roll etiquette. Lil is right, you break off (never cut) a piece of bread and put a dab of butter on it. People who cut their bread roll in half and put butter on the whole thing are very common darling.

    Gasp!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not common! I don't wear Burberry checks!!

    I do rip the roll in half before I butter it instead of using the knife, does that make me less common?
